The vessel was delivered by South Korean shipbuilding major Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) on 21 August.

Maran Gas Marseille is classed by Bureau Veritas (BV) and has a cargo capacity of 174,000 cubic metres. The ship files the Greek flag.

According to the shipowner, this LNG carrier features a highly efficient and environmentally-friendly design, including an optimised hull form, shaft generators, high-efficient gas screw compressors, air lubrication system and an LNG sub-cooler.

Another shipbuilding giant from South Korea, Hanwha Ocean (former Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering) is building LNG carriers for Maran Gas. Last year, the Greek shipowner placed a $466 million order at Hanwha for the construction of two 174,000 cubic metre class LNG carriers, equipped with a high-pressure dual-fuel propulsion engine (ME-GI).

The vessels will be built at the Okpo Shipyard and are expected to be delivered in 2026.
